Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

The Christian faith would have died long ago if a miracle had no repeated itself - a miracle which remains just as great and incomprehensible as it was 1,900 years ago... The miracle is that a human soul in the face of death, loaded down with guilt which it can never make good, finds rest and immortality in an Eternal High Priest who loved the dying world even unto death... This is the one unshakable foundation for our faith in immortality and eternity... -- O. P. Kretzmann, *The Pilgrim* p. 106
